Disease and illness

OverviewVersions

Description

While (CD) defines disease and illness as “(an) illness of people, animals, plants, etc., caused by infection or a failure of health rather than by an accident,” CWRGM employs this subject tag to refer to human diseases and illnesses only. Furthermore, we apply it to both specific references to diseases and illnesses, such as the measles, and general descriptions of diseases and illnesses, such as sickness or ill health.
